We must be crazy to leave. But as of 11 o'clock this morning our landlord won't let us stay here, and they're sending a team of cleaning ladies over as enforcers.
For people who have to leave in 1 1/2 hours, we're surprisingly sanguine. Most folks are sitting and eating breakfast out of the odds and ends we have left in the refrigerator. Someone's tallying what we owe each other in grocery money. I hear a brother in-law announcing he found the nine of hearts, which has been missing for days. And there's a yellow Lab walking around with a cone collar and a t-shirt on. (Picture to follow.)
Having the laptop here has been a blessing and a curse. Lots of us have been able to check in with work during our vacation. I leave it to you to decide if this fact falls under b. or c.
In other "b. or c." news, the fact we have internet access this year has led me to out myself to my family. I showed one of my sisters in-law that blogs are not just for 20-somethings by pulling up this page. For one horrifying second, I realized she was about to see the picture of her two boys. What would she say? It could have been ugly. But all she did was laugh uproariously, then call the kids over to show them they are famous on the internet. Whew!
